We just came back from two great weeks in Italy and the Santa Caterina was the highlight hotel of the trip. We had a junior suite and the view was so amazing it was hard to do anything but sit and stare.
We travel a great deal and stay at very nice hotels, but this was probably the best ever. In my opinion the food, fish dishes especially, were excellent every time. We stayed for 4 nights and ate in th hotel 3 times because of the food. The wine list was also excellent and the head waiter chose very good, less expensive local selections, when asked for ideas.
No one mentioned that it's a very easy 5 minute walk into town. Although we are 65 years old, we walked both ways twice, both in the afternoon and evening, rather than wait for a taxi or bus. Coming back is a fairly steep hill, but not terrible. If you can walk around Positano, you'll have no trouble with this.
One of the walks to town was to get the ferry to Positano, which was a beautiful, inexpensive way to go. The ride was less than 30 minutes and the scenery was amazing.
Since we went early October, there were no crowds, great weather, plenty of pool lounges and the service was warm and helpful. We were out sightseeing each day during lunch, so never tried the pool restaurant. We'll certainly go back to the hotel in the future.
The only negative was the adjoining decks. We had an Eastern European couple who sat there and smoked incessantly. When they were on their patio we couldn't enjoy our own.
